In Reply to: RE: One doesn't have to actually try the silver wires. posted by Mr. Dick Hertz on March 04, 2017 at 09:52:42
I catch a tad of sarcasm here? In my travels, I've stumbled onto silver wire concoctions that actually sounded mellower than copper ( Soundsilver)....and of course those that fit your description.(Darwin).... and those that sound spot on. ( Shindo ) I'll add ClearDay to that on the cheap.
And as always....YMMV.
I agree that pure solid core silver wire tends to sound mellow, with no intrinsic brightness other than a goodly amount of treble energy, which can reveal other elements within the signal chain that contribute to a perceived brightness in playback. Otherwise, the reputation of silver causing brightness tends to be silver plated copper wire with an unclean sounding top-end as the chief offender, or perhaps a poorly designed/implemented pure solid core silver cable with a tipped up treble characteristic. YMMV
Yes, I would say that in a lot of cases if Silver sounds bright you should look elsewhere in the system instead of shooting the messenger.
Duster, I have to agree for the most part, yet I've found my silver clad Morrow MA 5's to be pretty even handed.....not bright in the least. I just have a problem with someone who declares silver to be no better than copper after sampling one manufacturer's silver IC in his system. I would call that painting with an extremely wide brush. I've got cables(both solid and stranded) that are copper, tinned copper, silver clad copper, silver and last but not least, Graphene Extreme from Cerious Tech. They all can sound very good in the right app, so I'm not jumping on ( or off ) any particular metal's band wagon. Let's just say I'm an equal opportunity cable user.
